Cub Scouts wear two different uniforms.

1. The Field Uniform (sometimes called "Class A").
  • Lion Scouts wear a blue Lion t-shirt, hat, and belt. Lion dens may choose to wear an optional neckerchief.
  • Tiger, Wolf, and Bear Scouts wear the blue Cub Scout uniform shirt and shorts or pants, hat, neckerchief, neckerchief slide, blue belt, and socks.
  • Webelos Scouts wear a tan Scout uniform shirt with blue shoulder loops, green uniform pants, hat, neckerchief, neckerchief slide, green belt, and socks.
See this link for more information on the Field Uniform.

2. The Activity Uniform (sometimes called "Class B"). This is your Pack 227 t-shirt, which you will receive after paying your Pack Dues, and your choice of shorts or pants.

Wearing uniforms has been a method of the Scouting movement from the beginning. Decades of experience show uniforming to have many benefits, including:
  • Equality. The uniform represents a democratic ideal of equality. Scouts from various cultures and different economic levels wear the same uniform and cooperate as equals.
  • Identification. The uniform identifies its wearer as a member of the Cub Scouts. Badges on the uniform tell other members that he or she belongs to their den, pack, and council. The uniform itself identifies a good citizen to the entire community.
  • Achievement. The uniform displays badges and other awards so the accomplishments of each Cub Scout can be immediately recognized.
  • Commitment. Wearing a uniform is a constant reminder to each Cub Scout of his or her commitment to the ideals and purposes of Cub Scouting: duty to God, loyalty to country, and helpfulness to others.
Our pack emphasizes the importance of wearing the correct and complete uniform on all suitable occasions and encourages all parents to do the same.
